According to a press release (h/t EagleCountyNews), Attorney General Curtis Hill:
... today announced Indiana’s participation with 11 other states in a lawsuit against the U.S. Office of Surface Mining. The lawsuit alleges that regulations set in place by that office’s new Stream Protection Rule violate the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act, and thereby represent serious policy overreach by the federal government.Here is a copy of the 52-page complaint, filed 1-17-17 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Twelve states are signatories.
